Here we are. A week away from Thanksgiving. I pulled out my Thanksgiving notebook so I could plan the meal, but once again, it will just be the two of us. After my daughter’s show wraps, she will hop on a plane to Seattle and spend Thanksgiving with her brother. They spent last Thanksgiving together too but in Kansas City. We thought about making reservations and we’ve been invited to a couple of meals but I just love an easy, going, Thanksgiving. I won’t be making
ALL the things, just the tried and true, must have dishes. It will still be nice. Plus, the pup loves to smell the turkey cooking.
My book club meets tonight to discuss The Essex Serpent. I was way behind on reading it because I got sucked in by the new King book but I ended up reading the club book in one sitting so I am ready for the discussion. I am still reading King but will add Murakami’s new book, Novelist as a Vocation.
My scans from last week showed a potential kidney stone but the doc hasn’t called me about it so maybe it’s a watch and see. I do not want surgery again and will avoid it like the plague. In other health news, the knees are getting better.
This past weekend we were out and about and the holiday rush is in full swing. We hit one of my favorite indie bookstores but I left empty handed. I had two books on my list and they didn’t have either one in the store. I can easily order them online but it’s not the same as buying books in person. Everyone else seemed to be buying up the store. I don’t like the craziness of the holidays but it was good to see all of the stores doing well again.
What are your plans for Thanksgiving? The Sunday after Thanksgiving student ministry is having a Turkey Bowl with flag football. I will be on the sidelines cheering them on.
